The Institute of Nuclear Physics (INP) participates in the graduate education for the acquisition of a Master and Ph.D. degrees in the fields of Nuclear and Particle Physics, in collaboration with Universities in Greece and abroad. The graduate students are being supervised by Research Scientists of INP. The Institute of Nuclear Physics offers graduate courses for a Master Degree in collaboration with the Institute of Material Sciences and the ΣΕΜΦΕ department of the Athens Polytechnic University. The courses are a prerequisite to continue for a Ph.D. degree in the above scientific fields.
The experimental group on High Energy Physics is mainly engaged in the CMS/LHC experiment at CERN. It is responsible for the construction of  a substantial part  of the preshower detector and the design and construction of subsystems for the Trigger and Data Acquisition  system. Members of the group are contributing to the CAST experiment at CERN. The theoretical group activities involves calculations of probabilities for interactions between elementary particles while the research efforts span from phenomenology to Unified Theories.
